Eden Brook Fish Market Has Recalled 12 pounds of
Smoked Trout Pate'
Monticello, NY (SafetyAlerts)
- Eden Brook Fish Market Inc. has recalled Smoked Trout Pate' (Lot #071202)
because it may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism that
can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or
elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy
persons may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe
headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection
can cause miscarriage and stillbirth among pregnant women.
The recalled Smoked Trout Pate' (Lot #071202) was sold retail in the New
York City Farmers Market and at our retail store in Sullivan County. No
illness has been reported to date in connection with the problem.
The potential for contamination was noted after routine sampling and testing
by the New York State Department of Agriculture and Market Food Inspectors
revealed the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in some of the Smoked Trout
Pate' (Lot #071202). Sales of the product have been suspended while the New
York State Department of Agriculture and Markets continues their
investigation as to the source of the problem.
Consumers who have purchased the Smoked Trout Pate' (Lot#071202) are urged
to return it to the place of purchase for a FULL REFUND. Consumers with any
questions may contact the company at (845) 791-4345 or fax us at (845)
